Forum: GratefulDead Subject: All 72 Aside, Venturing Forward Into The Early 80's

Thought I'd fast forwared a little bit today and shine the light on a fine example of a great show (IMHO) from the middle years. One of my faves from a great run, this fine example of how tight the boys were in the Spring of 83 always brings a smile to my face. There are so many highlights in both sets of this gem its hard to count. One of my favorite Birdsongs, a blistering Big River, an absolutely overpowering Althea, one of the better S>F of the run and the Dew is a rumbling leviathan of emotion and power. Jerry was on point and leading the boys to the promised land this night. I can't think of a better way to get your Friday off on the right foot. Again, my neighbors here are incredibly lucky that most of the damage inflicted by this show was done during my commute.

Ah 83 Saratoga - I can close my eyes and remember it fondly

$8 tickets at the gate my friend - thats no typo

So much has been said about this show and it's all true - some killer stuff here - some people consider this the greatest dew of all time - I don't know but is on my short list

I think the fact that a board never surfaced has kept this one from being considered an epic show. That's a whole other topic - under/over rated shows because of recording quality

I hear people rave about the 85 show and to me it's nowhere in the league of 83

Whole hearted agree about this one v. 85. While certainly enjoyable, 85 was not even in the same time zone as this beast. The things I remember most about 85 focus more on the incredible venue and surrounding, as well as the dipshit acrobat on the balcony. Music was strictly OK. To me anyway.

I agree although because of the higher recording grade that circulates I'm more likely to put the 85' on in the bar. At home it's all 83'!

Happy Friday! This is just what I need to start the weekend. So much energy in this show it makes me feel happy inside :)

Listening to this monster Dew right now. Certainly one of the finer ones from this period.

Like you said the S>F is off the hook. Probably my highlight of the show.
The playin that follows is worth listening to as well.

The TDIH from '82 is very nice, too, and I was there!!
Interestingly there's a Baby Blue on this date as well. Ten years later on the same date. Huge coincidence :)

Isn't there an old Doonesbury cartoon musing, "Ah, the early eighties were great ..."

Thanks for pointing out that brain-fart. Don't want to give the trolls any extra fodder, now do we?

OK, some of us here are quite adept at flushing the little bastards out and then unleashing a torrent (and not just a little BIT) of condemnation and ridicule, a hobby that I sometimes enjoy myself.

This is certainly possible. Same balcony the dude was hanging off of in 85 (lucky enough to see that mental-midget live).

I'll see your 83 Saratoga Bertha, and raise you an 83 Red Rocks Help > Slipknot!

First Set Bird Song > Lazy Lightnin ain't to shabby either.

I LOVE that slipknot! Great show. I think the show from 2 nights later is just as good:
